At least I’m not reading that Congressman Keith Ellison (D-Minn) “misspoke.” The guy just didn’t know. A gaffe is described as a diplomatic blunder or noticeable mistake. PJ Media is right in calling his uninformed statement a “gaffe.” No, I don’t think Ellison was joking around, or being absurd. He may live in the U.S. but his mind lives in the Middle East. The discussion between O’Reilly and Ellison is on Iran. Ellison declares that we know Iran doesn’t have a nuclear weapon BECAUSE we have satellites. O’Reilly says, satellites can’t see underground. Ellison says we are inspecting Iranian facilities. O’Reilly says no we’re not – we aren’t allow in. Then O’Reilly tries to make the point that we ignored the Nazis and look what happend. Ellison saw no correlation, and instead came back with a chide that wasn’t so smart. Thanks to PJ Tatler. Video below.
